Six pieces every skier needs to look good on the slopes

Six pieces every skier needs to look good on the slopes

1. A ski jacket for every shape

From sleek silhouettes to voluminous soft shapes, ski jackets come in a variety of styles. A ski jacket should be a considered purchase...so make sure it fits with all of your winter wardrobe. As perfect for après ski as it is for the slopes. 

Choose a colour you know works with your skin tone. Don't feel you should stick to pure black but if you are wedded to it, then even a hint of colour can be truly eyecatching. 

Consider the length you prefer. Slim hipped skiers can try a cropped look. Those with hourglass shapes should research belted ski jackets to make the most of their form and figure. Apple shaped could consider a blouson style and pear shaped can try a belted or curved hem ski jacket.

4. Add super soft base layers  

Base layers can help make or break your holiday. No one wants to be cold on the ski slopes. Fine base layers teamed with a warm second layer can be wonderful for very cold days. On normal skiing days or warmer days, just a simple base layer or thermal will be perfect.

5. Love your gloves (and mittens!)

Some prefer gloves and others prefer mittens...but don't be without them. And air them out at the end of each day skiing so that they are dry and comfy for the next day on the slopes.

6. Lip balm to calm your lips!

The sunshine and the cold temperature, high altitude and wind can play havoc on the skin and most especially the lips. So keep yours moist and protected with lip balm. Our lip balms are courtesy of Albus & Flora. Using only organic and natural products these lip balms are packed with spf and provide a hint of colour with their sheer tint technology. Add a lip liner to turn these lip balms into a fab lipstick for day or night, anywhere and anytime.
